      Does it matter that SARs came? He lost more than he would have. 200k vs 50k. And being outed to family

    Three lawyers with your brother, and the police was still able to get away with 200k bail money? For no discernable crime committed by you? ???? Those lawyers need to go back to the grassroots of their education.

      Mandy those guys are terrible. The main lawyer that was even negotiating with them had this stupid Smiley face that made me want to just slap him across the face and send him back to law school. The guy is bad news.

      Truly. Believe it, most lawyers are clueless. Nigerians especially. As soon as I got the first lawyer on my pay roll, I knew ‘they may know all the techniques but onus lies on you to tell them EXACTLY what to do or what u want’. If you don’t, trust me, u’ll loose out and they ll definitely exonerate themselves. They have great denying skills. Ive lost so much trusting a lawyer. Such a woeful situation because I grew up believing lawyers are entrusted with all. Now I know better

    This were the same guys that set me up. That bobby i guy is just pretending. He is another version of the devil himself. I know everyone of them and the roles they all play. I would have loved to see their faces battered. Cos i told them when they were About letting me go that their criminal days are numbered and the laughed and told me they have done this to over a thousand guys here in lagos. I would really love to get in touch with freeman please pp!

    What an experience!!!

    The entire web of lies, denials, torture, extortion and desperation reveal the many things wrong with a society that dreads honesty, loves corruption and lacks empathy.

    Stay strong, Freeman.

    A friend of mine was also a victim of a gang operating in the same Ijegun – Ikotun aixs, am almost certain its this same gang. Am so full of joy that they’ve been shit down! and will likely spend much more than they extorted from defenceless victims to untangle themselves from this mess. You really went through hell, my heart weeps for you. Am so full of helpless rage that gays have become like easy targets for plunder and violation by gangs of subhuman criminals. Is there nothing that can be done?
    A friend of mine suggested befriending well-placed (gay) military and policemen, so that if one ever falls into the hands of these animals and is required to be ransomed, a call is put across and he sends reinforcements ….

    This is by far the most terrifying kito story I’ve read on here. A real Friday the 13th themed weekend.

    Seriously, people should stop going to Ikotun! That’s not a place to visit especially a Grindr acquaintance.

    I really want to know what happened. So sorry dear but you shouldn’t be apologetic about your sexuality to your brother.

    I’m so sorry about this, Freeman. Do take heart and start to plan a proper revenge for this. Involve as many discrete, evil people as you can. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is too much punishment for these bastards.

    Mehn, this is really scary.

    I can only imagine what you went through and still going through. I just hope you have fully recovered.

    All I know is that, no matter the excuse you give, once we decide to hook up, we have to video chat…if you claim you don’t have the app…we go kukuma meet for public place or you come to my house. I don’t even visit before.

    The rate at which guys would get set up this year would increase, everybody eye dey red…gay guys and straight guys would see this as a means to make quick bucks. We all have to be very careful and do necessary background checks.

    I am happy that the guys were caught.

    I was thinking how much your kito story was shaping up to look just like mine, until the whole SARS scene at your attackers’ compound.

    So sorry for what you had to go through. I’m glad you got released though. I can’t imagine spending the weekend in a cell.
    I hope you recovered your ATM cards and other valuables.
    Stay strong.

    I really sympathise with you over the horrible experience you passed through. Please guys, before meeting anyone, make sure you cleared any doubts that might arise. Like the story we just read, if the victim had worked on the disconnection between the voice and the age by insisting on video calls over and over again, more red flags that would have discouraged him from setting out on this journey to hell might have propped up. Thats not saying that video calls guarantees safety always but at least it helps to some extent. As it is now, there is no full proof safety tip again. We should just be very careful. Finally, as I have always said here, COOPERATING WITH BLACKMAILERS/CRIMINALS WHEN YOU YOU HAVE A CHOICE IS NEVER PROFITABLE. Going with the story line of one of your abductors was your undoing. The police men were pathetic to your plight at first until you admitted that one of the criminals was an acquaintance of yours. That singular statement created other possibilities agains you. I cant begin to list them here but the safest thing would have been to claim you were abducted. Its only during extreme cases that the police will go to the length of checking your chats to determine if you are connected to the criminals previously. No matter what, please try and be happy and put this behind you.

      Gad, soft tone and advice, I like..moreover coperating with black mailers, criminals is wrong and puts u in more dire situations. If it was I, I’d maintain I just got acquainted with one Michael on social media, who sent Samuel to pick me up then I was ganged up on. We don’t have to be gay. And if it happens to come up we are gay, I ll deny. Two dudes cant be Friends no more? Also the police aren’t investigating that (gayness) they were already sympathetic knowing u were the outsider of the 4 men arrested so it d HV bn best to stick without stupid Samuel

    run as fast as you can ,even if area seems to be developed with lot of buildings around ,funny enough this line as been used on me twice ,the first time was at ibusa in delta state back in 2013 when I knew nothing about kito,the second time was at aduwawa in benin .I remembered walking down with the so call neighbor son he had sent and I kept on telling myself to turn back but at the same time reassuring my self that nothing could happen since we were walking down to the house on foot and the area was to some extent developed unlike the first time where I was taking down to a bush on bike

    lastly I believe there should be a guide here on kito diaries to either avoid or survive in a kito situation
    in my two kito situations I av being very lucky from preventing my family from knowing
    1)the very first one I was lucky to wearing a skinny jeans that had my transport laying very flat in my pocket and some change in my back pocket ,I never knew I could lie for state until that very day I had to cook up a story that I was into tb in other to raise money for my forth coming exams ,the only thing they collected was my phone and palm I was wearing
    2)the second I was given my transport to go bk to school (uniben) or they would release my confession video of a fake identity I instantly created.
    on any visit try not to go with ATM cards ,identity card ,in fact go along with a torchlight phone ,don’t go dressing up too flashy because in the end it prevents you from selling a fake identity that could be created by you and also try to act very innocent and believable and try not to give into threat too easily.

    Wow! i cried twice when I was reading this…. Freeman, did you go through this? when we spoke on phone about how you were robbed, you didn’t give me the slightest clue that you had gone through such an ordeal…. How on earth can you still laugh so loudly as if nothing this intense happened… you are strong, i pray that your brother acknowledges how profoundly strong you are with regards to your sexuality.
